Servings  

Preparation

1. Dry the goat cheese on paper towels. Gently dip the cheese into the bread crumbs and place on sheet pans. Chill at least 2 hours or overnight.

2. For each serving, bake 2 rounds of goat cheese in a 450 degree oven until lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let the cheese cool while roasting the figs. Lightly grill the figs to heat. Toss 3 ounces mesclun and 3 to 4 pear slices with 1 ounce vinaigrette; season with salt and pepper. Mound on a chilled plate. Top with goat cheese rounds, figs, and a few almonds.

Notes

To roast figs for this salad, remove the top portion of the stem. Season with salt and pepper and place the figs in a 2-inch-deep hotel pan. Add enough chicken stock to cover the figs halfway. Add a bay leaf and a thyme sprig. Cover and roast at 350 degrees until tender and plump, about 20 minutes. Warm skin-side-down on a grill just before service, if desired.
